Stay Healthy, Prevent Flu
Influenza, commonly called “the flu”, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus that affects the nose, throat and lungs. Influenza spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Unlike the common cold, the flu can cause serious illness and can be life-threatening. Each year, influenza is responsible for more than 9 million cases of disease, 140,000 hospitalizations, and 12,000 deaths.
It can take two weeks for the flu shot to be fully effective.
